I offer cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy, and work from perspective that we are more than just diagnoses or labels.
Hello! In my years of experience, I have found that my primary method of working with others is to come from a person-centered point of view. I've worked with folks who struggle with anxiety and depression, life stressors, and those who may have a history of trauma. My goal is to come alongside you during your journey and help you discover ways to cope with what has been going on in your life, and to help you address any unhelpful patterns of thought or behavior that may, at times, get in the way of you achieving your personal goals.

Training and experience include EMDR, Ego State interventions, CBT, DBT and mindfulness.
Therapy is a space to feel safe and accepted while we explore the most vulnerable parts of self. I am passionate about holding space and exploring those parts that hold on to trauma and survival skills that may escalate and interfere with well-being later in life. My background and experience include individual support for adults healing from trauma, grief and loss, adjustment to acute and chronic illness, personality disorders, anxiety disorders and depression.

My approach to therapy is systemic (acknowledging the important influence of families, work, faith and school) and strengths-based with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) elements.
I believe that therapy is meant to empower clients to feel that they are capable of change and living a fuller, more integrated life. I work with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families utilizing a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach in therapy with the goal of creating a safe haven for clients. This simply means integrating the many parts of a person into therapy in the hope of improving one's emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.

I am passionate about helping individuals understand and embrace all parts of themselves. Sometimes you can feel like you're stuck in a rut or have hit a wall and just need a little support to hep you. I'm here to help you out of that rut or over that wall, by learning new coping skills, managing anxiety or depression, working through life transitions, handling stress, building self-esteem and more. I welcome all clients to bring their full self into the room, where they can be seen and heard.

I utilize a psychodynamic approach to therapy and also use techniques from attachment theory, motivational interviewing, DBT , strengths-based methods, and EFT.
My approach to counseling invites individuals into a warm, nonjudgmental space where they can explore challenges in their lives. I aspire to offer a safe space for individuals to be vulnerable and their authentic selves by practicing empathy, compassion, and support. I believe that individuals are able to make transformative steps in their life when they are motivated to change and offered a healthy and supportive environment to open up in. My client focus is on women with sexual trauma, relationship issues, and intimacy and sexual struggles. I work with adolescents 8-17 years old, adults, and couples.

I use a variety of effective, evidence based modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT , and Trauma Focused Therapy.
“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” I see my life as a mission to help others see themselves in their original beauty, to learn the truth about who they are so they can be set free, to assist them in opening to their own unique destiny, and to work through beliefs and behaviors that keep them trapped in old ways of being. This is work I have had to do on myself, and still continue to do. I believe in using a holistic approach, which addresses every level of our being - the body, emotions, mind, and spirit.

I also use DBT , CBT, and ACT.
I am drawn to working with people that are struggling with relational issues: attachment issues, relationship adjustments and individuals struggling to “reparent” themselves after stressful or traumatic youth experiences. Folks that would be a great fit for therapy with me might struggle with ADHD and anxiety. There is this belief that if you are good at masking your emotions and thoughts, that you can be better at the work you do. The reality is that we’re all human. The reality is that we all struggle with different things and there is hope for change.

Therapeutic approaches include narrative therapy, DBT , Motivational Interviewing, IFS, and family systems.
Sometimes our thoughts, our feelings, and our circumstance can be hard to put together. When we try to connect with others, or we have no one to connect with, we’re left feeling misunderstood and lost. A memory that we have a hard time letting go of, a loss of energy, seemingly with no explanation behind it. Trauma, grief, loss. These burdens can build up over time. Having a partner as we journey through and process these experiences can be invaluable in finding peace within ourselves and our story.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
